Putnam & Mason: Sidetrip to Greenwich
My design crush Robert Passal opened a new design destination in Greenwich with business partner Kim Alessi. I visited the shop just before it opened, and I was delighted to discover inventory Robert had purchased with The Antiques Diva® at the Paris Flea Market and in Italy. Join Robert and me on Tuesday, Feb 6 with Garrow Kedigian at the D&D Designer Forum Series, as we discuss how to source antiques like the experts, with sponsor Duralee. I was in Connecticut with Diva Guide Doni Belau as we planned our New York area US antiques buying tours – #NoPassportRequired, so of course we had to stop for a preview of the P&M collection!
New York interior designers Robert Passal and Kim Alessi opened Putnam & Mason in Greenwich, CT, in May 2017. Called the D&D of Greenwich by Architectural Digest, the atelier promises to make NYC design to Connecticut. The workman were putting finishing touches on the showroom as Robert and Kim welcomed us despite the flurry of last-minute activities and gave us a personal tour of the showroom.
Taking center stage both in the Putnam & Mason showroom and on the website is this 17th-century hand-painted Italian chest that Robert discovered on-tour with The Antiques Diva. Discovered in a convent in Italy, the colors and craftsmanship on this chest literally took my breath away!
Putnam & Mason has a multi-tier design approach:
The shop offers a collection of antique and contemporary furniture, art and accessories, with custom options available, home delivery and design services.
The 2nd tier offers trade services for local designers from the Sample Bar select range of brands that P&M represents.
The 3rd tier is one-stop-shopping to assist clients with home renovation projections including kitchens and baths, landscaping and media rooms, partnering with local vendors.
Interior designers, furniture manufacturers and showrooms, architects, landscapers, shelter magazines and design industry professionals stay ahead of trends in design, decor, art, cuisine and fashion by traveling to locations that inspire and nurture their creativity and are an opportunity to see first-hand emerging trends in the design world.
